This is a small place with maybe about 10 tables. The view is good and sea breeze is amazing. This maybe best place on the sea front for a quite dinner. The cocktails were amazing. The food menu was limited but tasted fine not amazing though. Come here if you want a nice relaxed dinner with your friends or family.... More

On 15/11/2014 with my wife I visited this restaurant for lunch. It was not our first visit. whenever we visit Pondicherry (now Puduchery) we visit this place. But this time we were disappointed with the service. When we entered, right from the door man until we sat at a table, no one wished or received us.You know the place was... More

Called in at the rooftop bar for drinks, the sea breeze was refreshing and the ambience was great. A special mention for our bartender and ace cocktail maker Mr Tamil who takes great pride in his work and served us up some tasty drinks.

I went to the Lighthouse recently with a couple of friends. We didn't eat dinner, but I'm throwing down four stars for the setting, ambiance, the cocktails and the service by our bartender, Mr. Tamil. We had a great time and will be back the next time we're in Pondicherry!

Lighthouse is barbecue restaurant put up on the rooftop. Nicely done architecture with a view of sea. I loved the romantic candle light dinner with sea breeze blowing with my family. Definitely worth going. Food is very nice and you can order best sea food here.

Well, the name Lighthouse is a bit of a decoy - the lighthouse is there, but nothing of the sort that you might be thinking of. The best part is still the open air ambiance. You might be in Pondicherry at any time of the year, but a time after 6pm at this place is just wonderful. The cool breeze,... More

The very good rating given is purely for the general atmosphere we experience on entering this restaurant. It's located right beside the beach, constant low wind, good music, perfect service all accounted for a perfect evening out. Our bartender, Mr. Tamizh, served more than that was expected. We got drinks on the house, mojitos with a personalised Pondi touch to... More
